Depending on your ship, you might not have the room for two HE or APO, as a cruiser captain, I rely heavily on hull tanking. You can clear one shield drain with HE, but especially in Red Alerts you'll be spammed with them, so it's pointless to waste your time caring about the shields when your hull is strong enough.
That means you should have two Engineering Teams and good armor. I recommend ablative armor, as it covers most types of damage, perhaps neutronium wouldn't be too bad, too, to have additional protection against torpedos.
